Thai Peanut Chicken ‘Pasta’ with Ginger Fig Sauce

Last weekend was national PB&J day and I felt the need to celebrate!  I randomly decided to google food holidays recently and it’s amazing how many there are. I basically have my menu mapped out for the next month with all of the obligatory celebrations. (Sunday was chocolate mousse day- how can you NOT celebrate!?) Anyways,…

Mufongo

Mufongo is my number one reason to visit Puerto Rico. It is so delicious that I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. In fact, I tried doing just that on our last trip to Puerto Rico (much to the dismay of my travel companions). :-/ I liked it so much I practically had…

Pad Thai (minus the nightshades, soy and grain)

I miss Thai food!!! Thai is my ultimate favorite take out. It’s what I have when I’m happy, sad, or getting sick. I’m typically a curry and Thom Kha girl, but I made Thom Kha yesterday and Pad Thai is sounding good!   So here is my clean eating take on a take-out staple. Pad Thai: with…

PB&J Pancakes

Sometimes you wake up wanting a banana, but not really wanting a banana; wanting pancakes, but not wanting to feel like you ate pancakes all day (nap time – please?). That’s when I make banana pancakes. It looks and feels like a pancake, but its secretly a banana, in disguise. What?! It’s true. I thank…

Morning Rituals: w/ baked eggs and sweet potatoes

I’ve been thinking a lot about morning rituals and how important they are in setting the tone and energy for the day. I’ve had a lot of changes to my morning routine over the last 6 months – for better and for worse. John and I started working together which has been amazing! I wouldn’t…

Fettuccini Alfredo ala cukes and cauli

A healthy twist on a favorite: Fettucini alfredo ala cukes and cauli recipe uses nourishing bone broth & veggies for gluten free, dairy free pasta dinner

Baked lemon salmon with coconut spinach

I broke out of Raw Vegan with the most delicious meal! It might just be that I had just spent nearly 3 weeks without cooked food that made this taste so delicious, or it might have been the freshest salmon in Colorado. Regardless, it was the perfect meal for the initial transition. Sweet potatoes are…

Day 15 – Will Power

The bad reaction and the thought of fewer foods made today one of the hardest yet of the cleanse. I’m a little over two weeks in and I found myself wanting everyone else’s food all day, and second guessing this plan. It started with not wanting anything for breakfast. Then grew throughout the day. Is…

Raw Cauliflower Asparagus Risotto

This is hands down the best thing I’ve made yet on this cleanse. It was warm, it was Raw, it had tons of veggie protein, it had coconut fat, and it was delicious! Most importantly, it did not taste like pureed cilantro and garlic. I went a little overboard on that flavor last week. This…

Temaki Avocado

With my newly added and divinely lipid-ful Avocados, I’m making some avo mango handrolls. These were delicious and fresh and everything you’d want from a raw vegan sushi alternative. I wanted something fresh and juicy to replace the texture you normally get from the raw fish or tomato. The perfect replacement was small cubed watermelon. This fruit…
